Maria Elena lives with her husband and two minor children, who are in school. Maria has a bakery, which she has operated in her house for a number of years. Her husband helps her make bread, which he later goes out to deliver to all their customers, who have businesses such as stores, from which they obtain very large orders. Maria's desire is to grow even more in her business, in such as way that she can serve a larger number of customers. It is for this reason that she is applying for a loan with which she can buy flour wholesale, along with leavening and all the products that are used to make bread in large quantities so that she can obtain them at better prices. This will be of great benefit to her business as much as for her family, who depend absolutely on the bakery, since it is the only source of income that they possess. This is the reason why she strives day after day to offer better service to her customers.
